We present a comprehensive and current review of the etiology, evaluation, treatment, and outcome of antenatal hydronephrosis. When a diagnosis of antenatal hydronephrosis is made, many questions regarding pregnancy, prenatal care, intervention, and what may be expected after birth are raised. Debate and controversy exist on the diagnosis and subsequent evaluation and management of the child with antenatal hydronephrosis. A review of the literature and our own experience with antenatal hydronephrosis are presented in order to guide the physician who is caring for mother and child.
